Under Construction (Ages 4-7 years)
Put on your hard hats engineers and join us for our The Engineering of Cities! In this camp, students work hard to apply their knowledge of construction to save the beach from erosion and build their very own city from the ground up. From roads and tunnels to buildings and skyscrapers, students discover that no job’s too tough for an Engineering for Kids engineer! Building a city is more than roads and skyscrapers. In this camp, students explore civil, mechanical, and environmental engineering. Students explore the engineering behind objects that they see every day: skyscrapers, roads, tunnels, and even cranes.

Mechatronic Mastermind  (Ages 8 - 12Years)
Eureka! Kelvin has finally done it! He has created a perpetual motion machine. But what is this?! An evil genius has stolen Kelvin's masterpiece -oh no! Kelvin is now looking for a trustworthy team to develop and test new gadgets that will help him find and safeguard his perpetual motion machine. Explore the basics of mechatronics engineering and logic based programming as students use little-Bits and work together to design gadgets, tools, and machines that will help Kelvin get out of any sticky situation he may encounter.

Design the Future (Ages 8 - 12Years)
What does the future look like? Join us as we embark on an odyssey to explore the future of transportation, manufacturing and structural. Let’s take a look at the innovations of today and apply them to create the designs of tomorrow as we explore ways to harness clean energy and house a growing human population. Become an engineer and help Design the Future.
